Mine will often turn almost clear just before eggs start to hatch. That is - if they aren't hiding during the entire 'pregnancy'.

Ever seen a 8 month pregnant woman wearing jogging pants, hair not brushed for days, no makeup for the past 3 months and ice cream dribbling down her chin?

Not the most attractive either.
